My DX is at stock now (2.3.340.MB810). Does it make sense to flash dxgbrooted now or wait for OTA and root later? Thanx

Do you want to try Gingerbread before the OTA? That would be your deciding factor.

And also if you ever wished to try a GB rom or theme, or any other super-user-required items.. Overclock, undervolt, etc.. All those "root benefit" items. As of yet I don't think they've "published" a method of rooting unrooted GB, but they do have "pre-rooted" versions out. The OTA will be unrooted and at present, you cannot root that version.

Go for it! GB is really sweet! If you are new to the root deal, just make sure you have read read read up on it. Also, some good how to vids on youtube.

If you know EXACTLY what you are doing and are ok with the risks and down time then go for it. It's all about risk vs reward....both are pretty high.
